, totally propostrouse. one is the idea that rupert murdock and rebeka brooks never asked a reporter hey, where did you get that story. tina has been an editor. i worked for an editor, it's propostrouse. the second idea is he sat there at the set of the company that he has his hands all over and didn't know about millions of dollars doled out to shut people up? >> hundreds of millions. >> it's an insult to our intelligence. if he didn't know, he's disconnected. but he did. >> steve, you think he didn't know about the hundreds of millions? >> i put it simply, the cover up is worse than the crime. to go in yesterday and have lied, i think would be arguably his biggest mistake his whole crisis. i'm prepared to believe he said he didn't know what he didn't know. you have an elderly man who was posturing. i think he's beaten down and a shadow of his health. >> he is shattered by it. he cannot throw his son overboard. that makes it very, very emotionally complicated. at a point when he's become so global, so remote of the press coverage, he is experiencing, for the first time, really, he's

murdock's people is going to test. brooks was released on bail after being arrested over the weekend. she was heading the news corp. media division when she stepped down. she turned herself in and is cooperating with police but continues to deny any wrong doing. late last night, london's police commissioner abruptly resigned. the head of police there. paul stevenson announcing he's leaving his post that his unit they are investigating was corrupt. had close ties with news international's now defunct news of the world. pat, i want to invite you in on this. where does this go? it's clear how cozy the relationship was between the politicians and the media. >> right now, it's going up to james murdock. quite frankly, people are going to seize upon this. it's a disaster in england. there was a bribery scandal. the head of scotland yard is going to resign. i think they are going to try to bring it to the united states. i don't know that anything has been done here. somebody might have hacked into the 9/11 folks. i don't think the wall street journal had anything to do with that. i don't kn

for the must-read opinion pages. we're going to start with "the new york times" by david brooks. it's entitled congress in the lead. are you ready? >> yeah. >>> tina, you said after you saw the speech, you thought it was dated. david brooks saying "behind the times" like he's a step behind. >> i do think that the republicans seem to be winning this. simply being so absolutely unreasonable and so willing to be irresponsible that it seems to be working. that's a terrible thing for obama. he's left as the grown-up in the room. a grown-up who concedes everything. now left only with the six month thing to say no to. and he's going to have to say yes to that because he's going to go to default. he's going to go the next six months campaigning about an issue he didn't frame right in the first time. so it's a real problem for obama. >> what we need here is one of the ronald reagan moments where the president said i will veto this bill. if john boehner sends me a temporary extension that will not calm the markets, i will veto that bill. he didn't do it last night. curious to see the follow-up

support of melissa brooks. smiles for the cameras, but calls for brooks to resign are growing louder. one of the most damaging allegations the paper faces is the phone hacking of a 13-year-old murder victim. the charismatic redhead was editor of "news of the world" at the time. >> if she goes, that puts a spotlight on rupert murdoch's son, james, and if he is vulnerable, rupert murdoch himself is in the frame. so to some extent, she's a lightning conductor. >> reporter: murdoch's son is widely seen as his father's heir apparent. >> james murdoch and melissa brooks can deny knowledge, but they certainly cannot deny responsibility. >> reporter: brooks clings to her job even as hundreds of "news of the world" employees have lost theirs. fired suddenly with just a promise that news corp will do its best to find them new positions. one employee reported brooks taking tough questions from an openly hostile staff. >> you're calling our newspaper toxic. the final edition had a thank you and good-bye. inside, an editorial read quit simply, "we lost our way." the tabloid is finished. pr

brooks who heads to parliament today. uk police being questioned by parliament. they're under scrutiny for failure to investigate previous hacking incidents and alleged ties to executives in murdoch's companies. and "the new york times" reports that aides close to the murdoch family spent years and millions of dollars covering up wrongdoing at the now defunct "news of the world," the "times" cites interviews with hundreds of current and former employees say "the news of the world" paid police for information. and a twist to the story, a reporter and the scandal's first-named whistleblower was found dead yesterday. there's an ongoing investigation but police say the death is, quote, not suspicious. "the guardian" newspaper is reporting that police found a bag in the trash near rebecca brooks' home saying the bag contained a computer, phone, and paperwork. detectives are examining the bag. cnbc reports that murdoch is considering stepping down as news corp. ceo. he could be placed by current chief operating officer, chase carey. meanwhile, standard & poor's now says it may cut the compan

of hezbollah and hostage takers and -- david brooks who i like. he doesn't usually insult democrats. so i like him. he doesn't usually call barack obama a fascist or a nazi or whatever republicans were calling him last year. but he's tough on republicans. he says they're immoral. and after the 10 elections, obama, remember, brought in the fact that he would not cut taxes for the richest americans after the election, he did. he ran on the notion that he would close guantanamo bay, but once he got the information, he didn't. they indicated they would try the top terrorist in new york. they didn't switch the position. why, it's the right thing to do. i hear you, some of the language is over the reality. i would put it on the table and the republican freshmen are blocking it. at the end of the day, that's the reality. >> if the president kept his word, i wouldn't call him a member of the hezbollah. the main stream media has been so over the top in the past week. i want a deal to be done. i want revenue if we have to raise it through closing the loopholes, that's fine. but jim, the media

today. we are going to start with david brooks. >> over the past few weeks, washington seemed dysfunctional. public disgust has risen to epic levels. they have been responsible and brave. if you are a democrat, you hate to see domestic cuts. if you are a republican you love revenue increases, even little ones. standing still is not an option. keep your reservations in mind and let the mission continue. okay, new york times the lesser depression by paul krugman. there's an old quotation that always comes to mind when i look at public policy. you do not know, my son, with how little wisdom the world is governed. now that wisdom is on full display of policy elites as both sides bungle the response to economic trauma, ignoring the lessons of history. >> howard dean, does david brooks have it right? are the republicans finally coming or paul krugman, the deficit cuts are only going to extend this small depression? >> i guess it's both and neither. there have been grown ups -- the nice thing is there are grown ups in washington still. they have input. the problem is, before the elec

insult tolt family, rebecca brooks, news editor at the time is still at her post at "news international." >> i've made clear she was right to resign, that resignation should have been accepted. there needs to be root and broad change at this entire organization. >> can the prime minister tell us what happened to that significant information that was given to his chief of staff? >> if it turns out he lied, it won't just be that he shouldn't have been in government. it will be that he should be prosecuted, but i do believe, mr. speaker, we must stick to the principle that you are innocent until proven guilty. >> he just doesn't get it. >> 24 past the hour. joining us now, nbc news chief white house correspondent and political director and host of the daily rundown, chuck todd. here to reveal the latest issue. gave it away. kind of the story of the world right now. katherine? >> it is. that's right. it's the story that keeps giving and i think it's going to keep on giving for quite some time to come, we're just at the beginning, really. >> how a tabloid meltdown threatens rup

brooks said the republican party is becoming an abnormal party. they are the deal of the century. they get a conservative columnist to say that. you don't end up in the center. you have to be on the right. you have to offer the deal of the century. when the deal goes down, i don't think you are going to see a lot of happy democrats going around. >> what happens if john boehner says this sounds good, i think we'll get something done and he has 60 to 70 members of his caucus say no, no, we're not going along with it. >> if that's all he has, i will be shocked. >> you think there will be more? >> he had 50 or 60 during the government shutdown stuff. there was no revenue there. i would be shocked if that's as far as the defections go. >> as much as we look at this and focus on president obama and his political fortunes, all of these moments leading up to the moment is an extraordinary moment for john boehner. as you saw yesterday with the report in the new york times and eric cantor coming out, that is the leadership battle. eric cantor is waiting for the moment john boehner tried to

rebecca brooks have been asked to testify next week in front of parliament. >> what's really interesting, nlg now rupert murdoch has been confident that politicians of all parties were going to support him. now they are all turning against him and that changes a lot. >> reporter: murdoch shot down "the news of the word" because it was described as a toxic culture but the company has started fighting back against allegations involving two of the other papers, the sun and sunday times. gordon brown questioned the tactics on how to get information on a 2006 article suggesting their methods may have been illegal. a new statement from news international denies wrong doing and says the story the sun ran about their son originated from a member of public whose family has also experienced cystic fibrosis. some say it is about time, including actor hugh grant in recent months led his on campaign against the tabloids. even recording this conversation with a deputy editor of "news of the world." he acknowledged that hacking was widespread. >> but celebrities themselves you justify becau
